Announced: “Lovenest” to Appear In LOOMING LOW VOL. II Anthology (2022)

Just received correspondence from editors giving a greenlight to announce: My short story, “Lovenest,” is slated to appear in the forthcoming Dim Shores anthology, Looming Low Vol. II, a follow-up to a book which was nominated for the 2017 Shirley Jackson Award, and won the This Is Horror Award for Anthology of the Year. Sam Cowan and Justin Steele are helming this project — Cowan and Steele are a pair of professionals I’ve been eager to work with for a number of years. The intent, according to Cowan and Steele, is to premiere the anthology in August, 2022, to coincide with the bi-annual NecronomiCon in Providence, RI (August 18-21, 2022).

The table of contents for Looming Low Vol. II will be announced in the weeks ahead.
